Week Commencing 5th January 2021
Happy new year everyone!
We are going back to basics this week to really master sentence writing.
1) Think about and discuss your ideas to these questions:
What is a sentence?
What do all sentences have?
What do most sentences have?
What is not a sentence?
2) Look at the posters attached below - were you right?
3) Task - Now try the 'Get it Right!' sheet attached below.
These may be simple sentences, but the focus is to remember the key points on the poster;
* Sentences ALWAYS start with a capital letter.
* Setences ALWAYS end with a stop, which could be a full stop, an exclamation mark or a question mark.
4) Now try writing your own simple sentences that are correctly punctuated and follow the rules on the posters. Maybe you can ask a grown up to check them for you, or email them in to me.
You can use the 'Who?' & 'What?' cards attached below to help you generate simple sentences.
For example, 'The man is driving a car.'
This week we are finishing off our current unit and putting all our practice into action.
The main teaching point this week is that when we add or subtract, it is very often more efficient to add or subtract the tens mentally first - see the images below.
Try to use sentences like these:
'If I know 7 + 6 = 13
Then I know 7 tens + 6 tens = 13 tens
So 70 + 60 = 130'.
'If I know 15 - 6 = 9
Then I know 15 tens - 6 tens = 9 tens
So 150 - 60 = 90'.
And similarly for subtraction:
TASK - attempt these worksheets:
FRENCH - We are learning and practising the numbers 1 - 10 (see YouTube video below).
GEOGRAPHY - We are looking at naming and identifying the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world (PowerPoint and YouTube links below).
